It is a happy accident how Furtography Pet Pics evolved from our parent company, Mannequin Madness.
Our photo studio in our warehouse was normally rented by vendors who wanted to shoot their apparel. And they could use our mannequins during the shoot.
But one day a lady asked to rent the studio to take photos of her dog and her friend wanted to take a photo of her cat.
Although we didn’t have any of the props or accessories we have offer now, she was thrilled to have a place with professional lighting, free parking and budget friendly prices.
She and her friends were so doting and attentive to their animals. It was the first time I became aware of the term "fur baby."
Shortly after that a friend asked me to baby sit for her fur baby and I started taking photos of him everyplace I went
And because Ringo loved the camera so much I started posing him among the different props we had at the mannequin warehouse, like our dog mannequins.
Then we started making floral collars for Ringo to wear. Then I started making matching a floral crown for me to match Ringo's floral collar. I guess you could say I fell down the rabbit hole.
I was having so much fun taking photos while dog sitting. I was beginning to understand why dog mom's act they way they do.
So I thought it would be nice to allow dog owners to take fun and fast photos of their fur baby in our studio.
